Born and raised in Ohio, Andrew Black is a writer of weird fiction with a Midwestern flair.  He has written stories for Short-Story.Me, SNM Horror Magazine, and the anthology Eye Witness Zombie from May December Publications.  He maintains a blog of writing tips, rants, weird news and movie and book reviews at

Influences on his writing come from Jim Butcher, H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Lin Carter, Brian Lumley, R.A. Salvatore, and Stephen King.  Many of his stories are set in and around a fictionalized version of his rural Ohio hometown, and incorporate local folklore and ghost stories.

Andrew currently resides in Hilliard, Ohio, with his girlfriend, Mandy, and his three fickle muses, house cats named Luna, Precious, and Star.

  1. I am currently accepting submissions for an anthology in progress entitled Crimson Dreams, which will be an antho consisting of author interviews and flash fiction. The theme of the fiction – as well as the interviews – will be one’s tendency to have nightmares that somehow inspire a piece of fiction, or change one’s life in way.
    After reading the submission guidelines here , if you decide you’d like to take part in this antho, I’d love to have you aboard.
    The interview I’d conduct with you { via email} would also be based on the subject of nightmares; their inspiration for one’s fiction, how real they seem to be at times, do you they really have a hidden meaning behind them, etc. And if your fiction for the antho was actually based on one of your own dreams, we can of course focus part of the interview on that, too.

    So…take a peek at the submissions page, and if you think this might be something you’d be interested in, let me know ASAP, and I will add your name to the list today.

    Best wishes,
    David Boyer

  2. I was wondering if I could contact you about Max Bruin’s Quantum Theory of Ghosts. It has become a large logical piece of my research. I would appreciate it if you could contact me.
